The Real Reason Why The World is Suffering

And the real reason why veganism is pointless.

And that would be overpopulation.  Simple as that.  You see, hundreds of years ago, especially before the industrial age, people were simpler and lived mostly on family farms or in cities surrounded by fruitful land.  They took eggs from chickens they themselves owned and took care of, and drank milkproducts from healthy cows they took milk from naturally.  They could also go to a nearby stream and catch a fish that wasn’t totally toxic with mercury.

The age of enlightenment and the industrial revolution created new technologies that made life much, much easier for humans.  Labor saving devices, from agriculture to telephones to large ships that could cross oceans in style, developed at this crucial time.  And yet, technology ruins everything.

Everybody wants the same necessities and even the same luxuries.  We are all equal in suffering.  But create a world where there are billions of people all wanting the same thing, and you have a recipe for chaos.

There is nothing wrong with wanting to eat eggs, cheese, butter, or the meat of any animal.  We’re now omnivores just like the humble dog is.  So going vegan really is pointless.  It’s too late to save the environment.  And keep in mind, the earth will endure long after humanity dies out, the environment will be there, but the earth won’t be supportive of human life.  So we’ll all die.

You are not responsible for anyone but yourself, but i’m sure if you’re normal you care about your family too.

Every human being loves privacy and a space of his own.  It is something inborn in us.  But create too many people, and suddenly, the standard of living plummets through the floor.

More people means more trouble and a lower standard of living.  We can’t reverse this trend, because only a madman like Hitler would kill people just because they are useless or undesirable.  That’s just not moral, just, or humane.

Not everyone needs to reproduce, and if you are in a state of wealth and independence to have children, try to limit your family to two or three offspring.   Think about yourself, think about your children, and think about the children of the human race and how the future will be for them.

The lacto-ovo vegetarian diet has been proven by all forms of science to be the ideal human diet.  And don’t be afraid to be an opportunist and eat fish from time to time.  The main idea is to lessen your carbon footprint and leave the environment healthy for your future generations.  That is all you can do as a human being in the modern age.

Please consider this thought.

Hedonism vs Stoic Discipline

‘Do not go to the pot for every thirst, and do not go to the doctor for every ache.’  Benjamin Franklin wrote this in ‘Poor Richard’s Almanac’, a book of wise proverbs he wrote himself.  And it still applies to life today.

Hedonism means to indulge in anything you want, and to do it until it loses it’s fun.  Discipline, or Stoicism you might say, is the opposite, denying yourself pleasure and luxury in order to be more tough.

Obviously, moderation is the best way between these two extremes.  And everyone gravitates more towards hedonism and less towards spartan-like discipline.  It’s just easier to indulge.

I often say in my writings, ‘less is more’.  And it turns out I’m right about this. There is something in philosophy called, ‘the law of diminishing returns’.  What that means is, everything is fun when it’s new, but the more you do it, the less valuable it becomes.

And after a while, even fun things get boring if you do it too much.  That’s why less is more.

But obviously human beings lean towards pleasure and away from self-denial.  It’s just natural to be that way.  How this relates to diet and fitness is that the more indulgent you are with food, the heavier and less conditioned you will be.  Indulge too much, over a long time, and you will come down with the chronic, degenerative diseases that plague the modern man.  This is a simple demonstration of karma in life.

So while a healthy dinner might be chicken and brown rice, everyone wants chicken in a gravy with tomatoes, salt, sugar, and who knows what else, over white rice.  And who knows what else they’re eating throughout the day or night.

The point is, indulgence will make you softer, and discipline will make you harder.   An athlete has to discipline himself in every way, not just diet, to perform at his best.  We should all take a lesson from competitive athletes.

Less is more.
